Long path names in windows

From: Colin JN Breame <colin_at_breame.com>

In the windows version of svn, there is a difference between:

$ svn co svn://repos c:\path

and

$ svn co svn://repos path

The first being an absolute path and the second being relative.

The difference seems to be with long path names. I have read somewhere
that relative paths have a max length of 255 whereas absolute paths can
be much, much longer.

So, I suggest that all relative paths are converted to their absolute
versions when running on windows. Infact, maybe there is a function in
the apr that can be used. Anyone know about this?
